About Joshua

I currently am a Middle School Math Teacher in the Public School System. I hold a B.A. from Brandeis University in Massachusetts and a Masters of Arts in Teaching from the University of South Florida for Mathematics. At 13 I first took the SAT and received a 770 in Math. Four years later I took the SAT again and received a perfect 800 in Math. At the age of 14 I took the SAT II Math IC and received a 790. At the age of 15 I took the SAT II Math IIC and received a 800. I also scored a 5 on the AP Calculus BC test. I have a desire to help others and will work hard to improve the scores and knowledge of students. It's not just about showing a student how to do a problem but to make sure the student understands how to do it in the future. I currently am a Middle School Math Teacher in the Public School System.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Great Tutor

After one month of weekly tutoring with Josh, my daughter brought her Geometry grade from an F to a B. During that time she took two rather difficult tests at school and earned 95% on both tests. Not only does she have a better comprehension of the material which Josh has reviewed with her, she actually stated that she now likes math. Words I thought I would never hear from her mouth.
